Encouraging Imaginative play and Fostering Children’s Emotional Development
WASHINGTON, DC, May 21, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — A new play center has emerged in Washington, DC for children ages 3 and up. Imagineland is a multi-themed play center that engages children in a miniature emotional intelligence activity before being unleashed into the fun-filled playroom. Within Imagineland’s Playroom, children can dress up and role play with various costumes and props, create with multiple materials by making their own costume or designing empowering posters, and roam the area of extravagant themed play tents.
Imagineland opened its doors with the new modern pop up theme in a DPR (Department of Parks and Recreation) site, Columbia Heights Community Center at 1480 Girard St. NW, Washington DC 20009 on the 1st floor.
Imagineland will keep its doors open every Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm this Spring up until June 16th, 2018 and will emerge again this Fall in a new and/or multiple locations.
This new play center has a very distinctive goal in mind, and that is to bridge the gap between education, recreation, and health. Imagineland’s goals are met by encouraging parents to engage in the short emotional intelligence activities with children which fosters bonding as children learn about themselves. Completed activities can be taken home for reinforcement.
Likewise, emotional intelligence has been found to be just as vital as one’s IQ as it teaches children to be aware of, manage and regulate one’s emotions. Activities taught focus on building skills such as problem-solving, responsibility, empathy etc., and all encompass the theme of assisting to empower the child. Moreover, strong emotional intelligence skills have been linked to increased health outcomes both mentally and physically.
Most importantly, Imagineland Playcenter is focused on what children do best, Play! They will have so much fun they won’t even realize that they have equally learned an important skill too! Children will be amazed by this miniature child-like dream world. Likewise, with opportunities to complete additional short emotional intelligence activities for a prize, it becomes more evident that the more your child plays the more they learn!
Imagineland play center offers parents the peace of mind that children are not only receiving the benefits of being able to play with peers through an imaginative play world but that they are benefiting from their play in many ways. Parents are also awarded the opportunity to learn more about emotional intelligence themselves through a wide variety of articles provided as they watch their children play.
Pricing for the new play center is a value that all parents will find affordable for the enriched emotional development of their children at only $5 an hour. Upon entry, an empowering bracelet is given to every child. With only 4 more Saturdays left before Imaginelands hiatus and re-opening in the Fall, this is not an opportunity to be missed.
